Nearer Than Your Shoe-Lace

Ibn Mas’ud (radi Allahu anhu) reported that the Prophet (sal Allahu alaihi wa sallam) said, “Jannah is nearer to anyone of you than your shoe-lace, and so is the (Hell) Fire.”

[Sahih al-Bukhari]


Going to Jannah or Hell is the result of one’s own actions, both are close to everyone. One will be admitted into Jannah if he does good deeds, and will be consigned to Hell if he does evil. After death, one’s entitlement for Jannah or Hell will be decided.

And Allah Knows Best!
